I feel as if I've just got off a roller coaster ride... the ups and downs have made this year one I won't forget.
The biggest event was being present at the birth of my first grandchild, a beautiful baby boy.
I was also thrilled to win 3rd runner up in the UKCPS Annual Open Exhibition.
I treated myself to some special watercolours with the vouchers I received as my prize.
I'm still playing around with them, trying to get used to the colours. It's like learning to paint again!
Here are two sketches, the first is painted with my usual Maimeri watercolours, the second with my new
The blue skies and warm evening sun was on Christmas eve (aren't we lucky?)
There have been exhibitions and I've sold work so 2012 has been fairly successful, here's hoping that next year will be even better...without the roller coaster please!
Happy New Year to all. x
